It’s time to freshen up your interior as we move away from the winter gloom. Spring has sprung and these are the latest interior trends you’ll want to be focusing on.
Who’d have thought that glassblowing would… blow up?! (Sorry not sorry.) Thanks to reality shows like Blown Away and celebrities like Bella Hadid (who has practised glassblowing on her Instagram), glassware is the home accessory du jour.
But glassware goes beyond drinking vessels. To really embrace the trend, think: elegant oil and vinegar bottles, reusable glass spray bottles, sophisticated soap dispensers, and delectable drinks carafes. (And if you’re not up to speed on carafes, allow us to explain.)
Bringing the natural world into the home never goes out of style. Staying connected to nature is good for the psyche and using natural elements in the home induces calm. One such element that’s easily employed is wood.
But more specifically, this spring it’s all about chunky, wooden silhouettes and exposing the grain. And you can incorporate wood in any way you like, it doesn’t have to be via parquet flooring or expensive oak worktops.
Robust wooden furniture – like our wooden cross leg table – or even a set of rustic chopping boards does the trick. (If you choose the latter, ensure you know how to properly care for them with our dos and don’ts guide.)
In keeping with our favourite interiors aesthetic (shabby chic!), white furniture is the ultimate nod to spring. Neutral or pale tones bring serenity to a space and white always looks fresh and clean.
White furniture, such as those in our console and coffee table range evoke the relaxed, beachy vibes of The Hamptons. But if you’re not in a position to splurge on new furniture, smaller white home accessories work just as well.
‘Florals? For Spring? Groundbreaking.’ went Miranda Priestly’s famous line in The Devil Wears Prada. Of course, she had a point, but there’s a reason we circle back to florals in spring.
When it comes to decor, flowers are the easiest and prettiest way to freshen up a space. And since they symbolise new beginnings and rebirth, from a Feng Shui perspective, flowers are meant for the home.
Here’s another trend that’s perfect for Pretty Little Home fans. Yes it’s true, to be deemed vintage, an item technically needs to be over 40 years old (according to antique dealers.)
However, if you’re not into the whole preloved thing, but you love the rustic or vintage look, vintage-inspired homeware is where it’s at.
All of Pretty Little Home’s items – from larger pieces of furniture to smaller ornaments – embrace shabby chic design style. We’re inspired by old farmhouse kitchens, country cottages and ramshackle beach huts.
If you are up for a genuine antique hunt, visiting flea markets or charity shops is your best bet (as we discuss in our shabby chic guide).
